With a new organic farm looking to take root in Stone County, News 25 takes a look at organic food on the Gulf Coast. Sidney's Marketplace in Gulfport sells gluten free, organic, and local food items for those looking for a healthier option.
Store owner, Sidney Olson, says he started the market because he saw a need for organic food on the Gulf Coast. Most major grocery stores do not have a large organic section, yet the demand for organic food is growing.
Olson says, “Probably 90% of the people that come in my store are looking for the more healthier foods. They want organic products. Everybody seems to be learning now that a lot of the products you buy in the grocery store, there seems to be so many additives.”
Sidney's Marketplace is open Monday through Saturday 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and on Sundays from noon to 5:00 p.m.
